Most of Nehemiah chapter nine is a prayer of confession that’s worth reading and thinking about.
Things really haven’t changed all that much — God is still “ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love,” not forsaking his people. And people? “[T]hey ate and were filled and became fat and delighted themselves in [God’s] great goodness. Nevertheless, they were disobedient and rebelled against [God] and cast [his] law behind their back and killed [his] prophets, who had warned them in order to turn them back to [him], and they committed great blasphemies.”
Nah, things don’t change.
